Globe iPhone Forever Plan Promo Explained

Globe iPhone Forever Plan Promo Explained

Globe’s introduction of the iPhone Forever Plan will certainly confuse some subscribers so we’ll explain it to you as simple as possible.

The first clarification would be that the iPhone Forever promo is a completely new set of iPhone specific plans. This is on top of the existing MySuperPlan and Platinum Plans.

The basic premise of the iPhone Forever Promo is that under that plan you are able to get a new iPhone each and every year it is released with Globe at NO additional cash-out as long as you surrender your old iPhone.

With the regular MySuperPlan and Platinum Plans, you will have to wait for 2 years. With the iPhone Forever, each year there is a new iPhone you can switch your old one with the new for free. Your contract is still 24 months and is not extended.

Here are the promo plans under iPhone Forever:

iPhone Forever Plan 1599:
Free iPhone 5C 16GB
Php 601 consumable
1GB PowerSurf LTE
24-month lock-in
* New iPhone 6c free next year

iPhone Forever Plan 1999:
Free iPhone 5S 16GB
Php601 consumable
1GB PowerSurf LTE
24-month lock-in
* New iPhone 6 free next year

iPhone Forever Plan 2999:
Free iPhone 5S 16GB
Php101 consumable
Unli LTE Surf
Unli Calls and Text to Globe/TM numbers
* New iPhone 6 free next year


iPhone Forever Plan 5599:
Free iPhone 5S 32GB or iPhone 5C 32GB
Platinum Blue Membership
Unli LTE Surf
Unli ALL NET Calls and Texts
* New iPhone 6 free next year

iPhone Forever Plan 6999:
Free iPhone 5S 64GB
Platinum Blue Membership
Php1,000 Consumable Roaming
Unli LTE Surf
Unli ALL NET Calls and Texts
* New iPhone 6 free next year

The iPhone Forever Plan promo is only valid from November 15 to December 31, 2013.

Here are the requirement for the free switch every year.

* You will have to continue with your existing iPhone Forever each year you switch to a new free iPhone.

* For the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5S, eligible handsets for the free switch is the iPhone 4s and the iPhone 5.

* Other handsets will also be accepted (like the iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 or Galaxy S3, Note 2) but you will have to make an additional cash-out.

* Maximum cash-out if you lost or don’t have your old iPhone or handset for the plan is Php12,999.

* The free switch to a new free iPhone will be in effect on your 13th to 24th month of the Forever plan.

    para sa Globe, kaya pala tinatago nyo ang stocks ng LG G2, kasi dumating na iphone.. People are visiting your stores, calling your hotline, asking for G2, per saabihin nyo, walang stocks ng G2? So, may favoritism ang Globe? give what your customers are looking for, wag nyong ipilit ang S4 at iPhone kung G2 ang hinahanap~!

    • ariel says:

      Pati din GS4 wla na din daw sila stock.

    • pinpoint015 says:

      Dami ko na din napuntahan, puro out of stock. Dapat di na nila ihold yan kasi di naman lahat gusto ang iPhone..

    • Rae says:

      Hi pinpoint015 , may I ask which Globe center did you visit? I booked my LG G2 online, then visited Globe Megamall, was so disappointed na sasabihin nilang out of stock nag LG G2. Impossible! release G2 phones now!

    • LemmeExplain says:

      Who said that they’re keeping that stock so that people will get the iphone? Why would they do that? What business would keep products to rot to make way for the other product. Then lugi Sila if ganoon even if all the iPhones were bought. Walang ngang stock eh kasi malamang in demand. Isip2x din po ano po. Peace

    • Mario says:

      @LemmeExplain , if you’re asking which business would let their stocks rot to give way for other products , well I think it’s Globe. Visit globe community forum to see how many people wanting LG G2, but globe says it is out of stock, and then pushes s4 or iphone.

    • LemmeExplain says:

      idk.. basta it’s just stupid for a company to hold products like that. If that’s the hottest phone then that should be pushed more. OR baka wala na talagang stocks kasi if mabenta yan dito surely mabenta din yan sa ibang bansa kaya mahirap din mag-order sa manufacturer.

    • wew says:

      @LemmeExplain i think its possible and i dont think it’s stupid… cguro madami silang stocks ng iPhone na di pa nabebenta kaya un ang pinupush nila kaya tiatago nila ung ibang phones…kasi ung iba na rin ang nagsabe na marami ang naghahanap ng LG G2 kaya pagdating ng oras na nakuha na nla ung quota para sa iPhone at inilabas na nila ang iPhone cguradong may kukuha pa rin nito.

  2. Marc says:

    This only works because of the high resale value of an iPhone.

  3. dorksifrek says:

    Isasaoli din ang iphone 5s pagkadating ng ip6? Tama ba?

  4. Mad says:

    Sino magpapaloko sa globe raise your hand?

  5. a says:

    pangit nang idea

  6. Rem says:

    Do I still get to keep the iPhone after the 2 year contract? :)

  7. InTheMiddle says:

    1GB PowerSurf LTE – Does that mean that you revert to 3G when you exceed 1GB, or you have to pay for the excess?

    • Yusuf says:

      3G, EDGE/2G is already included in that plan. You have to pay when you exceed the 1 GB limit.

    • Wanderlust says:

      1GB PowerSurf LTE – Does that mean that you revert to 3G when you exceed 1GB, or you have to pay for the excess?

      It means you have to pay for the excess but with capping of Php999.

  8. sinned says:

    Nice plan. Briliant idea. ‘Bat ngyn lng.
    Plan 1999 sana kesa Note II Plan 1799 +4800 cash out pa

  9. wew says:

    sure na ba na magkaka6c next year?hahaha

  10. Guest says:

    So kung isa ka sa mga mahihilig sa iphone at gusto every year magpalit eto bagay sayo.
    Caveat, PAHIRAM lang ng globe ang phone. After a year kailangan mo ibalik hehehe.

  11. rough says:

    Di ko gets yung part na “on top of the existing MySuperPlan and Platinum Plans.” Does this mean na required na may existing line ka under Globe to avail of this? Or sinasabi lang na bagong pakulo to? Please enlighten me. Hehe. Thanks!

  12. epol says:

    tanga kasi ang marketing department ng globe, kumuha ng sang katerbang iphone sa inakalang bebenta to sa masa. di man lang nag isip na may dadating pang bagong smartphone na mas maganda pa sa iphone, ayan tuloy parang tanga yung mga sales agents nila sa pag benta ng promo nila, minsan may bumisita sa office namin offering iphones na taga globe at napahiya kasi LG G2 at Note 3 ang gusto ng mga office mates ko, at ang sagot ng taga globe ay….wala pong stokcs mag iphone nalang kayo kasi blah, blah, blah….

  13. suigeneris says:

    Hi sir Abe,

    Just to clear lang, from what I understand reading the post. Am i correct that only those who subscribe to the Forever Plans this coming Nov 15-Dec. 31 will get to have a new iPhone every year?

    My iPHone 4s plan is about to expire next year pa (April 9 to be exact) so if I want to get a new iPhone every year, I would have to apply for a new plan this coming NOv. 15-Dec. 31?

  14. M says:

    Makes you wonder why Globe is practically giving people a free iPhone every year. Hehehe. Android smartphone parin ako! (But I do love Mac’s laptops, that’s a different story)

  15. deuts says:

    E paano kung wala nang bagong iPhone next year? Isosoli nila bayad mo?

  16. globobo says:

    hmmm, napansin ko lahat ng plan walang unli data, bakit kaya :D

  17. AllanBriz says:

    @abe Pano kung globe business. Applicable pa ba yun forever promo?

  18. Jerrik says:

    Seems interesting, I am on unli surf superplan P1,799. On the new plan, P1,999 is the closet rate for an iPhone 5s but perhaps 1GB will not be enough and might end up paying more… P2,999 is too pricey for unlidata. Any thoughts?

  19. MPITA says:

    if a lot of people will be subscribing to this plan, then every year it will really be difficult to avail the iphone since they won’t have to wait every 2 years to change phones

  20. Matt says:

    For those people saying that Globe is hoarding LG G2 phones, well they aren’t. When they say it’s out of stock, they meant it. It just happens that Globe purchased a lot of Iphone 5S/C units to sell hoping that people would avail of it since it’s new. However, they miscalculated that people would not be that much into Iphone 5S/C. So the units that they bought would just be stored. That’s the mere purpose of this plan. It’s to get rid of those stored units.

    However, there are a lot of major flaws with this plan.
    1. If this were to be popular to consumers, it would have a negative impact when the new iphone unit is released next year. How sure are you that you would get to avail the new Iphone 6 on time before the Iphone 6S/C arrives. Knowing that, then you would be at a disadvantage.
    2. Globe services have already been a burden to consumers. Problems with low signal or late receive/sent messages. How sure are we consumers that we would be subscribing into a worth it service? Have they already fixed these problems already?
    3. What if a new gadget appears to be better than Iphone 6? How are we supposedly be able to cancel our previous subscription to this plan promo? Would it be that easy to cancel this promo? Would there be penalties to the promo if we aren’t finishing the current plan promo?
    4. Lets say you accepted the Iphone 5S in this promo. What if you lost this current phone or it was stolen? Would you be able to avail the new Iphone 6 without the old unit? It only says that you would need to pay the cash out of Php 12,999. How would you be able to avail the new Iphone 6 and continue with the promo without the Iphone 5S? Would that mean you would need to pay an additional fee to avail the new Iphone 6 unit without surrendering the Iphone 5S that was stolen?

    They’re a lot of things that may lead to a bad experience for consumers with this promo. The conditions were not too clear. I hope before you avail of this promo, be sure to ask a lot of information about it. You may instead be leading yourself into a bad subscription rather than a good one.

      i heard na gusto nila maubos muna lahat ng samsung s3 ata un kse madami ata sila nkuha pinapaubos muna nila un bago nila ilabas un G2, according to sa taga globe

    • Sam says:

      I agree. It is a bad subscription wherein Globe takes all the money and makes a subscriber feel as if you don’t have any value.

      I don’t get having to pay pre-termination of 26,000 on top of the handset price + trading in my Globe-issued S4. It doesn’t make sense at all. Eh di get a new line nalang pala then just keep the S4 eh ganun din naman ang magiging cost. Parang pinaiikot lang kasi tayo. Globe doesn’t seem to value their current subscribers. I mean, you’re signing up for another 24 months contract + surrendering the phone you got, so why pay pre-termination???

  21. fanatic says:

    grabe naman yang globe, ung LG G2 ayaw niu irelease!

  22. Dae Lim Napoles says:

    ehhh hindi naglabas ng iPhone 6 o iPhone 6c patay tayo diyan

  23. boknuy says:

    question sa iphone forever plan na 1999, may nabasa ako na unlimited daw ang 3g data nito, pero ang LTE is 1gb lang. tama ba? atleast may unli data ka pa rin pero 3g nga lang. pero ok na yun kesa walang unli net. korek me if im wrong? at paano pala sa lugar na wala pa silang LTE? hindi rin worth it kung walang unli data 3g.

  24. den says:

    I just called globe telecom about this, they told me na I still have to pay the termination fee. Im my case 1 yr na plan ko so I have to pay 15,000 plus admin fee na 550. After paying the fee trade-in ko pa yung phone. Sobrang lugi naman ata…

    • Sam says:

      BIG SHAM! Stay away from Globe!!!

      Actually, yeah. It’s a big dismay. Hindi ito promo, this is actually sort of a big sham. Di ko alam if Globe is trying to keep their customers or scare them away.

      I went to Globe and here is what they told me,
      1. Pay 26,000 pre termination fee
      2. Give them the S4 they issued me
      3. Pay P4,999 to get the iPhone 5s

      So technically, 26,000 + 4,999 = P30,999 PLUS THE VALUE OF THE S4 and then back to 24 months contract pa.

      It doesn’t make sense to pay the pre-termination fee when in the first place, the pre-termination fee covers the cost of the phone in the first place. So for them to ask for the unit back + ask for the full pre-termination fee simply doesn’t make sense. So even if a Samsung S4 costs P15,000 for a second hand unit, the total cost you’re handing over to Globe for a 5s is 45K+. Doesn’t make sense at all.

  25. Zeerows says:

    Hindi maganda ang experience ko with Globe. Had to have my then iPhone 4S replaced thrice right after kong mag-avail ng Business Plan 1799. Hina ng signal, hina ng data…1Mbps at most. Pag Smart na sim gamit ko, nasa 5-7Mbps palagi. I don’t think I’d avail of Globe services even if I was paid to do so!

  26. Ernst says:

    Then dun sa iPhone Forever Plan 1999 is not Unlimited internet. I thought na LTElang yung 1 gb yun pala both LTE and 3G e 1gb lang. For sure lalangawin yan. May maganda offer ng Smart ngaun.

  27. janesa mae ararao says:

    can i still apply for the globe forever plan even if i don’t have iphone at the moment?

  28. Kat says:

    Hi. May tanong lang po ako. If ever magsubscribe po ako sa Forever Plan, yung iPhone 6 po ba free lang talaga siya o ibibigay lang po in exchange nung 5s na nka-plan o ibibigay po yung iPhone 6 and at the same time sa akin din po yung 5s nun?

  29. Paul says:

    what if I have a postpaid account in globe but the handset im using is not from globe?

  30. camille says:

    do you think there will be another iphone forever promo in 2014?
